Forgiveness!

Look and you see a reckless man,
Once a man of the world
Forgiven.
How can this be?
Great is God’s mercy
Yeshua the
Lord of forgiveness.
Look and you see an adulterous
Once a women of the flesh
Forgiven.
How can this be?
Great is God’s compassion
Yeshua the
Lord of forgiveness!
Look and you see a larcenist
Once a man that was a thief
Forgiven.
How can this be?
Great is God’s benevolence
Yeshua the
Lord of forgiveness!
Look and you see a forger
Once a man of no truth
Forgiven.
How can this be?
Great is God’s charity
Yeshua the
Lord of forgiveness!
Look and you see a murderer
Once a man of hate
Forgiven.
How can this be?
Great is God’s sympathy
Yeshua the
Lord of forgiveness!
Look and you see a man
Who has broken all Of God’s laws
Once a man condemned to Hell
Forgiven.
How can this be?
Great is God’s Grace
The Mighty Redeemer
The Slain Lamb of God
The Risen King
The Lord of Forgiveness!
For God So Loves
We only need to
Believe and receive
Yeshua Messiah!

I read a post on Forgiveness and it left me in tears thinking about how great God’s Forgiveness is. So inspire by Patti over at Weekly Word & Much More, I tried to write a poem.

Our Forgiving God
Posted on April 17, 2016 by pattiurlvd

As I told her I have tried many times to write about how Great God’s Forgiveness is and failed. I still believe I have fallen way short of showing how Great God’s Forgiveness is. I have also tried to link back to her post but failed so please head on over there the best way you can and read her post. Thank-you Patti for a great post and God Bless!

    Lovely poem by the way. 🙂

  2. You can never fail at anything that you have tried your best to do. Failure would be not trying at all. So there is no way you have failed! Your poem is wonderful! And besides, how can one ever begin to explain how great God’s forgiveness is?? His forgiveness is so amazing that I can’t imagine there would ever be a way to fully explain it. You did a wonderful job though!

    • Terri, You have become the great encourager! Yes trying to paint a picture with words of how great God’s forgiveness is very hard. You are right how does one explain something that is unexplainable?
      The day after I posted this my mind was filled with the line I used Yeshua the Lord of forgiveness, let your heart and mind swim with those words and one will begin to see the greatness of forgiving. Thanks Terri fore the words of love you have given to me and God Bless You, Amen. 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed your poem.. so often we forget to acknowledge the power of God’s forgiveness we access through Christ Jesus. Your words left me thinking about simply HIs love for us. Love is so powerful that when we receive it, we too have the power to forgive one another and perhaps most importantly ourselves. Thank you for breaking down His love and power we have when we choose to walk in it.

    • What a beautiful comment on the love of God! Yes a Holy God, Loving God forgiving a sinful man filling us with so much love we likewise forgive ourselves and others. Beyond understanding so we are compelled to worship. God Bless you!
